It's definitely not where it needs to be as far as this device's potential.

Man I wish they were as serious about it as they were with the PSP.

The Vita is dead. Some people are just too stubborn to accept it.
Does Sony have any 1st party Vita exclusive worth mentioning, getting released any time soon?
Sony is focused on the PS4. That's where the money is...

Playing mines like crazy lately, haven't actually play my ps3 in weeks. Freedom wars and spelunky finished others so it's not dead. Feel sorry for whoever that'd sells there's or think there's nothing to play on it and it's dead.

The Vita is basically a hollow. It dies but always comes back and at times shows what its really capable of. However it then dies again and so it repeats ala like the Souls series, it's not for everyone.

It's dead compared to the 3DS. ~50 million units moved vs ~10 million units moved.

It's about as supported as the Wii U at this point; i.e. it takes a special team to really get a game selling on it.

Don't get me wrong, there's good games for it, but there's no more money in it now.

I play more DS games on my 3DS than titles made for it.

On my Vita- which I play more- I play mostly Vita games. And there's plenty.

If there were no money in it, they wouldn't make games for it.

Sony isn't making any significant games for it, and hasn't been for a long time. If there's money in the Vita apart from the ridiculously small niche audience, Sony would invest more into development of games for it. This isn't the case. There is no money for AAA first party developers with the Vita, just like you say there is no money for AAA third parties with the Wii U. You keep bashing the Wii U, but at the same time defending the Vita when they both suffer very similar issues...

So even when the 3DS is better supported with more games from 3rd party and 1st party developers Hicken still can't seem to find games other than DS titles to play on his 3DS.

BUT the Vita, a legacy device all but abandoned has PLENTY of games to play.

That statement is beyond absurd. Just goes to show the lengths that some people will go to downplay everything else setting their console of choice on a make believe pedestal.
